CrossOver Linux, an application based on Wine which allows users to install popular Windows applications and PC games on a Linux computer, is now at version 12.1.0
CrossOver Linux is making great strides for Linux and the new version fixes quite a few problems, not to mentions a nasty bug on Unity.
“On Linux, we have resolved a crash for Ubuntu / Unity users running Guild Wars 2. We have also resolved some error messages which had been present in the terminal on start-up from the command-line,” stated the official announcement.
Highlights of CrossOver Linux 12.1.0:
• The developers have chosen not to ship Wine-Mono with their application. Apparently, this particular feature has increased the size of the download package too much. CrossOver can still download and install Wine-Mono as-needed.
• A bug which caused CrossOver to print unnecessary error messages when launching Windows applications, complaining that certain icon files could not be found, has been fixed;
• Running Guild Wars 2 on Ubuntu 12.04 with CrossOver 12 triggered a bug in the Compiz window manager, which caused a CPU spike. A registry key, which can be used to disable the feature that caused Guild Wars 2 to trigger this bug, has been implemented;
• An issue where the screen would go blank during the installation of some programs has been repaired;
• Some connection errors with Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010, which occurred when connecting to hosted Exchange servers, have been repaired;
• A bug selecting shapes in Visio 2010 has been fixed.
CrossOver Linux now officially supports the following applications: World of Tanks, Quicken 2013, .Net 4.0, Guild Wars 2, Star Trek Online, and World of Warcraft.
